I have always admired his monochrome work. This, today, I think, is his best. What do YOU think?

He will soon be mega-famous. WOW.

by Anura Guruge



There is NO doubt at all, at all, Nature was delighted that 16-days after it was apparent the GSA has finally recognized Joe Biden as President Elect. This is a great day. It was quite the sunset to cap it. Thank you, ALL.

NOT going to Christmas Revels this year (viz. 2020) has been the BIGGEST impact COVID-19 has had on my life!

I was worried that this would come to pass in May 2020 — & ALAS it did.

I checked it out. IT IS GOOD. Well worth the money to rent or even BUY.

We have to SUPPORT Revels. We need them back, LIVE, in 2021.

So, come on. Be a sport. It is Christmas.

It will cheer you UP. SMILE.

Metamucil Shortage: Options For Circumventing.

by Anura Guruge


Check out Amazon.com.


Click to ENLARGE. The ‘Walmart’ ‘Equate’ comparable.

 


I am still getting comments & messages that the Metamucil shortage still persists in some parts of the country. I am sorry about. We, in New Hampshire (at least around where I live in the central part) appear to be out of the woods. But, to be fair, I buy the ‘Walmart’ ‘Equate’ brand — & have done so for many, many years. Bought a 180-teaspoon bottle this Monday at Walmart — & YES, I noticed that I was taking the last one.

I checked Amazon. As you can see from the lead figure they are currently out of stock but expect to be able to ship starting November 17, 2020.

So, my recommendations:

  1. Check online: Amazon, Walmart, Target etc.
    ….
  2. Try the Walmart equivalent. I have been using it for years. In terms of the FIBER content it is identical to Metamucil. Yes, maybe the granularity is slightly different. But, it works — which is more than what I can say for the capsules. They do NOT work.
    …..
  3. See if you can get it from another part of the country. Yes, if you really are DESPERATE let me know. I will see IF I can help you out. SMILE.

Nature Celebrates Joe Biden’s 2020 Election Victory.

That was quite the sunset on what was a monumental day. First saw it through the window. Got in the car & drove about .75-mile to a slight rise to get these pictures.

It sure looked like nature was celebrating Biden’s victory.

I Was At ‘Dixville Notch’ For The ‘1st In The Nation Voting’ Of 2020 — 1st To Hear The Results. (SMILE)

Attribution WILL be enforced.







Spur of the moment decision — or as close as it gets. I was in the Quest, at 8:10pm, within 6-hours of thinking about it. Had never given it any thought in prior years. Then, I had the idea. Teischan (14), who loves driving at night, said she would come to keep me company. 140-mile trip, one-way. 3-hours — BUT that was WITHOUT the snow. 75% of the trip, going & coming was in snow squalls & some very stiff winds. Close to 7-hours of driving. Got home at 3:45am. IT WAS WORTH IT.

Did not realize that it was being run by the (new) “The Balsams“. I had done a quick Google. Didn’t see anything obvious. Assumed we would see it once we got to Dixville Notch. And that is exactly what we did. Followed the ONLY lights — though it was a blocked road with a sign that said “Road Closed”. It took place in a beautiful lodge belonging to “The Balsams”. I had not made any arrangements. The organizer from “The Balsams” was extremely nice & professional. He let me in & gave me — what I consider — the BEST seat in the house. My pictures attest to that. Open window — with an unobstructed view & I did not have to jostle with anyone. See 5th image above — the 3 counting the ballots. RIGHT in front of I. I could hear them. So, I heard the 5 Biden calls before it was announced. I CAN HONESTLY CLAIM I WAS THE 1st TO HEAR ACTUAL 2020 ELECTION RESULTS.

I am glad I went. I am very grateful to “The Balsams”. Thank YOU.


Picturesque Setting Thanks to “The Balsams”. 

My Seat.

My View. 


Very 1st Ballot Being Cast Just After Midnight.


Only 5 ballots were cast. All 5 who cast them also happened to be officials that ran the election. Neat. I expected around 12 folks to vote. 4th image above shows all 5 that officiated & voted. They were good. It was a great experience. Glad I went. It was all done & dusted at 12:10am. Yes, 10-minutes, soup-to-nuts.


A few more pictures.


We did go to “The Balsams” grand liquidation auction in 2012. Wow. 8-years ago. Ironically I only bid on TWO items. I bid on the 2008 Presidential tally board — from when Obama was elected. I went up to $300. It eventually sold for $400 (according to WMUR), though I thought it stopped with the bid after mine (and I kind of suspected that the house was bidding against me). I also tried to bid on a plastic Coke bin. Though I was standing up on a chair waving my card, they ignored my bid and sold it to a lady for $10. C’est la vie.

From 2008.

Metamucil Shortage Appears To Be BACK; Luckily There Are Store Brands Available.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.


A MONTH AGO!

WOW.


Click to ENLARGE.


A month ago it seemed that we were back to normal — as you can see from the 2nd picture above.

Exact same Walmart in Rochester, NH, a month apart. I think folks have started HOARDING Metamucil. That is crazy. All the Walmart ‘Equate’ comparables were gone too BUT for the poisonous ‘Real Sugar‘ variety. I am impressed, & glad, that folks now have the sense to boycott that version. It is BAD for you. So high in sugar.

Well, I had to go to ‘Market Basket‘ which is kind of ‘next door’. I looked they had a store brand which is EXACTLY what I was looking for. I was happy. But, they only had two containers — & NO, I did NOT buy both. I am good like that.

So, my latest update. I will, of course, keep you posted.

Cardinal Tagle, Pope Francis Protege, Catches COVID-19 The Day After Pope Linked God To Virus!

The timing could NOT have been any worse for the pope. Day after he was carousing with the faithful NOT WEARING a mask — & saying “COVID will be beaten by God’s love” — his pet cardinal, Tagle, tests positive. Ooops!

Kind of embarrassing. But, we all know God loves his little pranks.

Cardinal Tagle is NOT the first cardinal to catch COVID. He is at least the 3rd.

On March 30, 2020, Cardinal Angelo De Donatis, the Vicar of Rome, was hospitalized with COVID. A few days later Cardinal Philippe Ouédraogo, Archbishop of Ouagadougou, of Burkina Faso, came down with it. There might have been others. So Catholic cardinals, despite being the supposed Princes of the Church, are not immune or spared.

Pope Francis MIGHT want to rethink his line & belief on COVID.

Pope Francis Implies That COVID-19 Is God’s Fault & God’s Responsibility. Say ‘Amen’ To That.

by Anura Guruge

Let’s get this STRAIGHT & RIGHT. No beating around the bush.

WE HAVE NOT BEATEN COVID-19 YET BECAUSE GOD HASN’T GOTTEN AROUND TO DOING IT?

Will be beaten by God’s Love“.

It is NOT beaten yet — so God’s fault?

I will buy that. I blame God. I know God can stop it whenever he sees fit.

So, I agree with the Pope.

What do YOU think?

I am surprised Trump hasn’t used this defense.
